A new neighborhood dubbed “The Heights” is planned for the East Side of St. Paul, Minnesota.
“The St. Paul City Council voted 5-0 to approve the Hillcrest master plan, setting the stage for major commercial and residential redevelopment of the 112-acre former golf course and country club on the city’s East Side,” reports Frederick Melo for Pioneer Press.
“The goal is to situate as many as 1,000 new jobs and 1,000 new residences at the property, recently dubbed ‘The Heights,” adds Melo. The master plan calls for light industry and a range of residential housing types, according to the article.
A full collection of renderings for the project is available at the St. Paul Port Authority website.
